While the iPhone and the iPod Touch come packaged with a spanking new pair of Apple headphones, the Cupertino-based company's normal elegance hasn't been retained in the making of the earbuds. Lackluster quality, generic looks, quite uncomfortable in truth and not the most optimal solution to get the best out of your music, the headphones are probably the low point of purchasing an iOS device - fortunately, patents suggest that Apple are looking to give their standard pair of buds an overdue makeover.
You'll never stop the struggle between Apple and the people who want to hack it, so why bother complaining? As of noon today, giddy jailbreakers can take the next step and go full-on with blacksn0w, the jailbreak+unlock for the latest 05.11.07 baseband (with tethering enabled to boot). Mac and PC versions are available and it works with iPhone OS 3.1.2.
In short, the blackra1n release is alive as well, with both Mac and Windows support and the installation instructions can be found here...
Geohot has announced that BlackSn0w, an unlock for iPhones with the 05.11.07 baseband, will be released in the near future. The new software will make it possible to unlock all iPhones, including those who upgraded to the latest firmware. An image was posted this morning showing arbitrary code running on the new baseband of the device (after the break).
